BA IN THEOLOGY AND MINISTRY
Christ the Redeemer’s undergraduate programmes combine academic study and practice. The BA in Theology and Ministry programme prepares students for future leadership and ministry roles (in church or community based settings) through developing their knowledge and understanding of Christian theology and enabling them to apply that knowledge in a professional / ministry context.
Upon successful completion of the programme, students will have developed a portfolio of experiences, learning and skills, and have extended their capacity as leaders and competency in the professional practice linked to their chosen study pathway. They are also able to communicate effectively in a range of written and presentation forms, reflecting critically on their own ministry practice and that of others, and having the ability to think and work independently.
This will also seek to develop their capacity for leadership and for working collaboratively and to have acquired the academic skills necessary for successful completion of the programme at level 6 and for future postgraduate study. The programme is based around five pathways which are validated by Newman University and listed below:
BA (Hons) Theology and Ministerial Leadership
BA (Hons) Theology and Ministry with Media Culture
BA (Hons) Theology and Ministry with Counselling
BA (Hons) Theology and Ministry with Youth Work and Music
BA (Hons) Theology and Ministry with Entrepreneurship
We also offer a foundation year. This is a one-year programme that will ensure you have the foundational skills needed to undertake one of our BA programmes. This programme is particularly suitable for applicants without A-Level qualifications. As part of the admissions process, we will work with you to decide which programme you should start with.
Alongside one of the five specialist areas, your programme will also cover theology, biblical studies, leadership, mission and contemporary culture, as well as academic skills such as communication and critical thinking required of higher education in the UK.
This is a professional programme in theology and Christian ministry: We are looking for a commitment to undertaking Christian ministry in addition to applicants meeting the academic entry requirements below:
- 2 A levels, an alternative level 3 qualification or for students aged over 21 there is also the opportunity to apply based on ministry experience and then undertaking our initial student evaluation (ISE).
- English Language ability at GCSE grade C / 5 or above. Applicants who don’t have the equivalent of an English Language GCSE (at grade C/5) will need to take the Cambridge English Proficiency Test and achieve a level B2.
- A basic level of proficiency in Information Technology (especially email and word-processing) is expected of all applicants but developing additional IT skills takes place through the College’s IT skills training programme.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
Applicants may be eligible for RPL if they have undertaken similar study at another higher education institution and wish to either transfer individual module credits or transfer directly onto the second or third year of the degree programme if they have a CertHE or Foundation Degree/DipHe respectively.
On successful completion of the programme you will be awarded a Bachelor of Arts(BA) degree.
